Hey, I'm here. This little ant has been busy getting "more" prepared. The way the economy is going we may be forced into eating our food storage in the near future.
You guys have nailed it on the head, had a very bad feeling about a person that we invited into our MAG group. He always wanted to "see and inspect" our preps. Thank God I never invited him to my home, just met him at another MAG members home.
Just finished painting the hatch to the 'pit'. Tried something new, used a Rustoleum thinner based commercial paint and added ceramic powder to it for toughness. I'll see how tough it is with some abrasion tests.
Also replacing my battery bank, 12 batteries at a time. Do it now before it may be too late.
